Need groundhog/woodchuck removed
« on: May 11, 2010, 02:58 PM NHFT »

We have a groundhog (or woodchuck, depending upon who you ask) digging lots of holes and eating our garden.

We want it removed safely (by safely, I mean with minimal damage or danger to ourselves and our neighbors; the critter's safety is not our concern).

If someone wants to trap/shoot/eliminate the critter, we'd be willing to discuss prices (FRN's, silver, or other barter).

Thanks,
Joe

I assume you've tried 'Juicy Fruit' gum? It kills them.  see: http://www.almanac.com/content/woodchucks

If you aren't poor and would rather humanely get rid of the pest I'd suggest a havahart trap:

If we trap it, we won't just release it to be a nuisance for someone else.  But if we do trap it, we'll only use a live trap, because we don't want to kill a neighbor's cat, instead.

However, we'd rather not invest in a Havahart for a one-time use, if we can find someone who already owns one.

If you know which hole is the main one or one that the critter uses most, pour some Red Devil Lye into the hole.
It gets on the critters feet and they will lick it off, and.....well no more critters.
Worked here.
Also soak some corn in antifreeze and leave near hole, make sure other critters can not get to it.

naturally you waited to have a groundhog after I came back to KY.  We kentuckians have handled a few of those in our day
